Not sure where this came from, received it in a forward but I thought it was worthy of posting.
REVENUE CANADA PENCIL SHARPENER – Funny, but a sad commentary
PENSION – A Must Read. Only in Canada .
Do not apply for your old age pension…
Apply to be a refugee. It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1, 890.00 and each can get an additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of $2, 470.00.
This compares very well to a single pensioner who, after contributing to the growth and development of Canada for 40 or 50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1, 012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.
Furthermore if you had the wisdom to have a RRSP and made other income generating investments you may have earned the right to receive nothing from the Federal Government as they claw your Old Age Pension back because in their opinion you do not need it!!!!!
Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!
Let’s send this thought to as many Canadians as we can and maybe we can
get the refugees cut back to $1,012.00 and the pensioners up to $2, 470.00,
So they can enjoy the money they were forced to submit to the Canadian government for those 40 to 50 years.
Please forward this to every Canadian you know.
